Leila’s Superfood Smoothie

Easy2 Servings
We love this fan recipe from Leila. Her Superfood Smoothie recipe is perfect as a mid-morning or mid-afternoon pick-me-up. It’ll satisfy your cravings and make a dent in your five-a-day! We all know smoothies are good for you, but they can often be packed full of sugar. Leila’s Superfood Smoothie perfectly balances the flavours for a healthy snack. Banana, apple and blueberries give this recipe a yummy sweetness, while the addition of beetroot, spinach and coconut water offer a vitamin-fuelled boost. The avocado gives the smoothie a creamy texture, making it feel even more indulgent. Leila steps up the recipe by blending in half a tray of our VeeTee Wholegrain Brown Rice & Quinoa for a slow release of energy; quinoa is also high in protein, so this recipe is great for keeping hunger at bay. A rice blend offers a smoother texture than the more traditional oats. Our Heat & Eat rice range is so convenient for quick recipes like this, so keep a pack ready for your daily smoothies.

What you need to get


  • 1 tray VeeTee Wholegrain Brown Rice &
    Quinoa Blend

  • 2 apples, cored and peeled

  • 1 avocado

  • 75g cooked beetroot

  • 1 banana

  • 1 handful spinach leaves

  • 1 punnet of blueberries

  • juice of 2 limes or 1 lemon

  • 1 pint of coconut water

  • 2 tbsp honey


What you need to do


  1. Thoroughly wash the fruit and vegetables

  2. Break the VeeTee Wholegrain Brown Rice & Quinoa with a fork.

  3. Cut the apple, avocado, beetroot & banana into pieces.

  4. Put all of the ingredients into a blender or smoothie maker and blitz until smooth.

  5. Pour and drink up!


Tips: A hand or stick blender is unlikely to give you a smooth consistency so we definitely recommend a blender or smoothie maker!
